By the time i’m writing this blog, its been 10 days since my graduation date. I’ve come to realize the fact that life after college is definitely more compelling, spontaneous and quite a buzz. i honestly FEEL, LIKE, LOVE and DIG it..(like Diggy in Rev Run’s House) Ofcourse after college, the next normal thing is to either go for graduate school, get married or find a job cause you gonna need to pay your freakin bills now.(thats if you’ve not been paying them already…)
One thing seems normal for everyone though, that after you done with college you either already have a car or you going to get one soon. And sad to say, I happen to fall in the latter section of that two-list option. I freakin have no car and i need one so badly you got no idea.
But first things first, i gotta get my schematics right.
1. What kind of Car do i want (or what kind of car is good for some college dropout like me)
2. Car Mileage and gas mileage
3. The cost of price, either used or brand new.
4. Insurance claims and stuff like that
5. Car longevity
6. Finance it or pay damn cash upfront
6. Plus many more…
Its one long list of things i’ve got to get done right. With literally no income as of now, i gotta figure out a way to get all things moving right. I know one thing for a fact that ill get it all done and by done i mean getting it done RIGHT.
So i get on the internet and i start googling stuff, tryna find enough information about cars and their reliability so that i can make some really good and well informed decision of which car to buy. Thing is, there already a bunch of info out there, you gotta dig through and get that right piece that you need. and now that i’m writing this freakin blog, i realize there could be a whole book already out there for the less-informed like we, to get our hands wet and heads sinked into this car-business thing. Or may be there is none and i got to write one. Got too much thinkinh about being an author and every little thing out there makes me think i gotta write a book about it (quite inHumane, right?).
Back to the car thing, i got this one piece and its all pasted below, some good info just about the car maintainability.
Just about Car reliability and keeping it up in good shape
Got this following block from a piece on Wiki…
Sikorsky, and others, have developed lists that itemize steps that a car owner can take, or identified operating and maintenance rules,to ensure maximal longevity. Yonger provides the following list, “10 secrets” for long car life.
1. Regular oil changes
2. Monitor the key fluids
3. Maintain the transmission
4. Change the plugs as needed
5a. Watch and care for the timing belt (if applicable)
5b. Watch and replace timing belt
6. Do not forget the radiator
7. Remember the filters
8. Fight rust
9. Know and use your maintenance manual
10. Drive with habits that don’t take years off the car
In a public economics sense, Kasmer argues that retrofitting autos with a newer transmission would extend the lifespan while at the same time increase fuel efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and prevent the sudden influx of discarded vehicles into the waste bin as cars are junked to be replaced by a modern vehicle.
More info on this coming to be updated soon as life goes on and the search for my brand new german made automobile, yeah i like german cars
